Aran Bell, star of the documentary 'First Position', will play the lead of the "Nutcracker." Lia Cirio and James Whiteside, principal dancers of The Boston Ballet Company and American Ballet Theatre, will return as guest artists in their roles as the "Sugar Plum Fairy" and the "Cavalier."
The show will run Dec. 21-23 at the Tilles Center for the Performing Arts at C.W. Post campus in Brookville.
